Hello World, From the relatively quiet burbs of Maryland I join you all. I'm here to learn as are most of you. I'm looking to try out anything and everything linux related. As my name/avatar shows, i'm a bit tired of windows(as i write this on a windows laptop) and need to advance my knowledge seeing as how I'm an IT pro in the field and it's costly to go taking classes. I'm no stranger to Linux, but more like the guy who knows what his neighbor across the street looks like and just waves everytime because he did. I'm open to any suggestions as to what flavor to try for a home experiment and/or professional endeavor . Glad to be here. Hope to be a contributor in the future.
